With any type of instrumentation designed to improve productivity, the most common question revolves around price. “What is the XRF analyzer price?” or “how much does an XRF analyzer cost?” It is not such a clear cut answer as it is completely dependent upon what the application is or likewise, what is the intended use for the instrument. The information below will assist you in understanding the different costs involved in XRF analyzer prices.

The reason XRF analyzer costs can be widely varied ($18k - $50K) is due to the fact that different applications require different calibrations and hardware. A handheld XRF that is calibrated for light elements in alloys requires a faster, more sensitive detector than an XRF calibrated for basic alloys where light elements are not a concern. This is due to the fact that the more economical SiPIN Detector is perfectly capable of separating most common alloys quickly and confidently however if your analysis of alloys requires the ability to detect light elements such as magnesium (Mg), aluminum (Al) and silicon (Si), you would need the faster, more sensitive detector, like Bruker’s innovative Silicon Drift Detector (SDD).

Similarly, the most appropriate XRF analyzer for analysis of the following would be the S1 TITAN portable XRF analyzer because it contains Bruker’s advanced Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) which is more efficient and effective for these types of analyses:
